Thousands packed the grand opening of S&R Cagayan de Oro today as the famed membership shopping begins its operations in Northern Mindanao.

After the formal blessing and inauguration, S&R opened its doors to the public at exactly 10:00am. But hours before the opening, traffic was already building along Kauswagan-Bulua Highway as vehicles have started to line up to enter the warehouse’s compound.

Customers start to queue along the side … waiting their turn. The first shoppers had to wait a couple of hours before being let inside. However, customer inflow started to normalize after the opening but still with long lines of eager and curious shoppers. Waiting time was somehow reduced to a few minutes.
